  • All children want to learn. With the freedom to investigate the world around them, they will become active learners
  • Each child is unique and develops at his/her own rate through developmental stages and different learning styles.
  • Children develop best in a caring environment where they are allowed to express themselves and when learning experiences interest them and are part of their world.
  • A positive self-concept is the foundation for learning and success.
  • Each child is special and learning cannot be forced upon him/her, its always born out of their own curiosity and questions.
